    I worked at New Mexico State University (More than 5 years)


    Compensation is on the lower side, but enough to live comfortably in Las Cruces. Friendly campus and city. Laid-back environment.


    Sometimes the environment is TOO laid back... it can be hard to get things done on time. Not enough communication between administration, staff and students.

    Advice to Management

    More efficient communication needed

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at New Mexico State University.


    I had a phone interview and two Skype interviews. I was then invited to campus. The on-campus was a day long interview. They housing me in a residence hall they were about ready to shut down for good. Process was very smooth and moved very quickly. They kept me informed of their process the entire time. Very helpful when I had questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The student staff asked this question: Red or Green? It is a reference to the type of chili pepper you like most.   1 Answer


    I negotiated, but they were unable to offer me anything. 31,000 is what they offer, 31,000 is what you will get. They will not help you out with anything. I tried to get moving expenses, that too was a no go.
